Food blogs

The Times Online has a story titled "50 of the World's Best Food Blogs"
I've been clicking through it, being familiar with a few of them, but I have also found a slew of new blogs to add to my own list and to click on when I'm looking for something to read. (Wow, can you say run-on sentence?)

Interesting stuff... check it out for yourself.
Orangette starts off the list at Number One...

A new magazine

I'm curious about this new magazine that's just come out.
Here's what they have to say about themselves -

"Delight Gluten Free is a NEW fun food & lifestyle magazine for people with Celiac Disease, gluten intolerance and food allergies. It hosts not only delicious gourmet recipes but easy semi-homemade as well. Plus - don't miss the Gluten-Free Meals on a Budget. Whatever your food allergy, you should be able to find something that fits your household. In their February issue they offer gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free, egg-free, soy-free and even some rice-free recipes. Not only that, DGF magazine will have a travel section coming in May, hosting lots of fun ideas and good advice for when you head out on the road. Personal stories, inspiring articles on Autism, Q & A with the Doc are among the many other features of this new venture."

I need this...

Well, I don't NEED it per say, but I really, REALLY want it.
It would just make baking SO much easier, now wouldn't it?

TC Boyle

Last night I went to hear/see TC Boyle speak at the 92nd Street Y about his new book "The Women". I went with John and Gina (pictured below), because they are the people responsible for me even knowing who TC Boyle is... I am forever grateful.

A bit of my Saturday night

In an earlier post I mentioned that Parlor Gallery, formerly known as Crybaby, was having an opening - here are a few images from Saturday evening's festivities.

I caught Jenny going outside for a smoke... Bad Jenny.

Another way to look at it

Sunday, 1 February 2009 - out walking on a sunny Sunday... A 55-degree respite from the bone-chilling, cold Dirty Jersey winter we've been having.

Today at work...

...we had to shoot women's bikinis.

While I was making adjustments, Amy fired the camera. I wasn't paying attention.

In this shot, at least I got a chance to pose...
